It is known that Google and Mozilla are deprecating Symantec SSL certificates soon in 2018.

However, I cannot find any official announcements from Microsoft about whether Internet Explorer (or Edge) will follow the same. Does anyone have any news on this? Many thanks.

Hi,

The SSL is the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details.

About the SSL Certificates in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer check this link. Deprecation of SHA-1 for SSL/TLS Certificates in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

Your response has almost nothing to do with the question.  The OP was not asking about what SSL/TLS is, or about the deprecation of SHA-1 certificates that you linked to.  It's asking about the systematic removal of Symantec certificates from the set of trusted Root CAs by Google and Mozilla, and asking whether Microsoft has plans to follow suit.
